Greeting open to interpretation
I’ve noticed recent postings in the Readers’ Hotline about the meaning of the word “evening.”
I grew up in New England. I may be a Yankee by birth, but I had no choice in the matter. I’m a Southerner by choice. And in New England, the word “evening” means dusk or 6 p.m., whichever comes first, and everybody there understands that as the meaning of the word.
And, when I lived there, I used that meaning of the word.
